Credit Cards

It s easier to spend money
through credit card..
You don't worry
that you will be short of cash,
There is no loose change 
in your pocket
To send you an alarm
That jingling sounds of last few coins
That tell you
Its time to stop
You don't care
how much you spend.
Just Rs100 or Rs500
Rs250 and 40 cents
There are no notes
To stare at you back
Money just flows out..
With punch of fingers.
You stop at every mall
Buy things you don't need
One extra zero
Really?
What does it matter?
till the bill comes.
Hopping on your doorstep
Then you need a strong heart
to bear the shock
when u realise
how extravagant you could get...
You have crossed the limits
over your stable budget.
Plastic money
Slipped out of your palm
With buttery steps
Tango feet
A naughty grin
You realise then
That you have lost reins
over your money
It was not virtual
It was real
and there is no going back......

Modi Rules

Just
Under
Modi
Thousands of ants
Emerge from their secure hole
With a grain of rice on their backs
Sacks of them
Hoarded
over the time
Grain by grain
All summer
Grasshopper gloated
"This winter
You and I
Will sing the same tune"
The black crow cawed
Cawed cawed.....
Sitting on a tree
Watched it all
A golden ring
Hidden under its paw

Happy Children's Day

Fearlessly she plucks out
one grey hair
From the crown of my head
She stands on one toe
on the edge of the chair
Dunks her finger into a bowl of soup
When she sees my raised eyebrow
She straightens up
She knows
That it means 'No'
She puts her arms around my neck
Her love as pure as gold
Expects nothing in return
Just a warm, cuddly hug back
Her million dollar
Toothy smile
makes me forget all my woes
Innocence, purity comes alive
as I see her noisily hopping around
She is just two
bubbly, happy
A beautiful world to me

Fear

FEAR
The first emotion
that arrives
When there is change..
Fear of the unknown,
Fear of shifting
from a comfortable zone..
Mind blocked,
Knows not
How to react.
Best  it is
to take a deep breath
Relax..
Tone up the muscles
for a new beginning..
Wait..
Soon the darkness
will disappear
All will be bright again....

I Am Finally Home

My new house
Slowly spreads
Its tentacles
Around me
Enveloped
Warm and secure
I am finally home...

Body Protest

At first you don't realize, 
you go around 
finishing all the chores 
one by one, 
mind tells you to stop, 
Asking you to pause
but you promise yourself
'just one more chore and I am done'..
you do that N times
without respecting the limitation
of your body ..
Finally body protests,
knocks on your nerves,
gently at first
then a loud bang,
pushing you rudely on the bed,
Stunned
you stretch
hoping to relax,
pain arrives
With thorns and needles
ready to stay...

Shifting Back To New Home

Two years ago, 
I had moved out of my home
That I had built  over the memories of many years

There was pain..
A deep wound 
while discarding the materialistic attachments 
Accumulated over the years

Separation is never easy..
BUT the old must may make way for the new..

We have to shed off 
Load of karma 
to find freedom
From excess baggage

Building has been redeveloped now
Invites me to come back

I shall move in
Back to my familiar neighbourhood..
The shades under the trees 
Lining my lane 
Are cooler now
(some older by two years)

Same smiling faces 
Outside my main door..
In the lobby, 
In the lift, 
In the building compound

But the walls of my house are cold
Very cold..
Lifeless..
They know me not
They have a new name, 
A new soul, 

I will have to start all over again, 
Building my relationships 
With the newness of the building..
Kiss the walls..
Add some warmth 
Transform this house into my own home...

A new beginning has just begun
I have to start planting new seeds of memories
Once again

I am listening

Yes
I am listening to you attentively,
savouring every word you say
with a glisten in my eyes
But I may not write a verse about you
Unless they move me
Unless I am inspired by your thoughts,
Unless they touch my cords of my heart,
Meaningless conversation
is just noise,
like pebbles in a box
like distant drums
I would rather be drifted away by my own tune.

Renewed Friendship

The day you unfriended me
A piece of me died
Of having lost a good friend
Laughter, fun, good times
In a moment
You changed
Cheerless, depressed, sad
I let you slip off my finger tips
after much ado and fuss
Everything revolves around a reason
To move on
We must
But now you are back
With a newer jest
Earnestly tying knots
Over broken fest
Sure I am not
How do I react
Careful I am
What do I express
Everything said I
My words you wore like a cap
Not everything is about you
There is sun, stars, moon
Newer set of friends have I
with better humour and sense
Life goes on
Time stands still not
New stories made each day
Older left to rust
Friendship could start again
If based on trust
Wound around confidence,
laced with love
You may sit on side lines
Start all over again
Let words tell stories
Let new chapter begin
Pick up the scars
Scattered on the floor
Nurse them back to life
Bring them indoors
Maybe we will merge
before the day is done
